This was a 500 mile round trip to snorkel and dive in Crystal River. The staff at American Pro were excellent from telephone booking right through to bidding us a safe journey at the end of our trip. Our tour guide was great and eventually found a large Manatee for us to get in the water with, what an experience!... More

We had an excellent time with the professionals at American Pro Diving Center. I highly recommend using a Groupon with them though otherwise it could get pretty expensive! Our captain Glen was clearly an expert in the area and was very patient with all of the first time snorkelers on the boat and had a clear passion for diving. He... More

Very good shop and professional crew. Manatee tour seemed to be in a residential canal, not the 'nature preserve' I expected but still a good up close experience. Might have to do with the season though. Combo cavern scuba dive was more of a cave but still fun.

I was traveling with my brother to Key Largo and made a stop in Crystal River to swim with the Manatees. We chose American Pro Dive Center and was happy with our choice. We arrived early to the center but the staff wasted no time getting us checked in and ready for our tour. All of the staff that we... More

Being from Maine, my only desire on my trip to Florida was to see a Manatee. The Groupon deal for American Pro Diving Center caught my eye and the desirable price was a shoe-in for me and my boyfriend. Starting at 8:30 AM we were sized with flippers, a wet suit and mask and we were off. I do have... More

This is a good dive center, very professional. I live local and am a certified rescue level. Not too personal but very professional. I shop here also for used gear.

Having used this dive shop before we choose to do their Rainbow River dive. We arrived at 12:45 for the 1 O'clock tour and collected our rental gear. The cost for this was $47.00 which included wetsuit, mask, fins, weights, BCD, tank and regulator. The cost of the dive was $35.00. Once we collected everything this is stored in your... More

I liked that the tour was on time and informative. The waters we dove were cold, after several minutes, even with a 3mm wetsuit. Clearest water I've ever dove and there were an ample amount of fish to see. The guide for our group was informative, funny and helpful.

We are relatively new to diving and choose to dive rainbow river while the rest of my family snorkeled. As far as the dive site, I really liked it and it was way different than ocean scuba that I trained in! After reading the reviews I called the dive shop and got a quote and when I arrived it was...

Travelled with Captain Phil on a trip earlier today and it was amazing! Considering the low season for manatees I didn't really know what to expect but surely enough Phil got us into the water with a manatee in crystal clear water within short. We had a very nice snorkel experience with a fairly small group of people. After finishing... More
